SIMS Parent App



The SIMS Parent App allows you to keep up to date with your daughter’s school life here at Ashfield Girls’ High School. You can access the system from a smartphone, tablet or PC – anytime, anywhere.

What you will find in the SIMS Parent App:
  • Information regarding attendance and achievement
  • School holidays and key dates
  • Access to your daughter’s school report
  • Notifications to remind you about important information such as key dates for your diary
  • Access to update your contact details, so we will always have the most up to date information in case of an emergency
  • If you have more than one daughter at the school, you will have access to information for all your children, from the same app.

Effective home / school engagement is the key to success and the SIMS Parent App is the ideal tool for schools and parents to maintain close and regular contact. Your daughter’s teachers will send push notifications through the app - whether it’s sharing information on homework, timetables, school reports or conduct, you can stay on top of your daughter’s progress throughout their education. Schools can easily send automated alerts and notifications directly to parents’ phones, and a clear dashboard gives parents an overview of their child’s school life, making for meaningful conversation at parents’ evenings.

The information we receive through the app will help you stay up to date with your daughter’s school life as well as support her development and progress.
